Here is the weekly review of the top performing Icelandic players, who play currently abroad.


Pavel Ermolinskij
Pavel Ermolinskij
   #1. This week's number one is an international guard Pavel Ermolinskij (202-87, agency: I.D.S. Law, currently plays in Sweden), who plays in the Swedish Basketligan. He could not help Norrkoping Dolphins (4-2) in their last game. Despite Ermolinskij's very good performance the league leader Norrkoping Dolphins lost 85-93 on the road to the leading Sundsvall Dragons. He was the top scorer with 19 points. Ermolinskij also added 8 rebounds and dished 6 assists in 35 minutes on the court. His team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And that game will be critical. Ermolinskij is currently fifth on the league's list of best passers with 4.6apg. He also averaged so far 10.0ppg, 6.8rpg, 1.1spg, 2FGP: 52.4%, 3FGP: 35.5% and FT: 67.4% in the 27 games he played so far. Ermolinskij is currently a member of the Icelandic senior national team.

Hlynur Baeringsson
Hlynur Baeringsson
   #2. Second place goes to an international forward Hlynur Baeringsson (200-82, currently plays in Sweden) faced previously mentioned Pavel Ermolinskij in the Swedish Basketligan last game. Baeringsson led Sundsvall Dragons to a victory against the closely-ranked Norrkoping Dolphins (21-12) 93-85. He scored 14 points, had 8 rebounds and dished 3 assists. Baeringsson's team will play only one more game in the Regular Season. And now that game is very crucial. Baeringsson is the league's best rebounder. He has very reliable stats this season: 14.7ppg, 10.2rpg, 3.4apg, 1.3spg, 2FGP: 56.7%(135-238), 3FGP: 44.4% and FT: 70.8%. Baeringsson is in the roster of the Icelandic senior national team.

Hoerdur Vilhjalmsson
   #3. The Icelandic player who performed third best last week abroad was an international point guard Hoerdur Vilhjalmsson (194-88, currently plays in Germany). He was the major contributor in a Mitteldeutscher BC's victory against the league outsider LTi 46ers (4-22) 89-76 in the German BBL on Saturday night. Vilhjalmsson had a double-double by scoring 16 points and making 10 passes in 28 minutes. Mitteldeutscher BC Weissenfels (11-15) is placed 14th in the BBL. Vilhjalmsson has relatively good stats this year: 10.1ppg, 2.1rpg, 2.7apg, 2FGP: 47.1%, 3FGP: 33.8% and FT: 78.3% in the 26 games. He is also a member of the Icelandic senior national team.

Jakob Sigurdarson
Jakob Sigurdarson
   #4. Point guard Jakob Sigurdarson (192-82, college: Birm.Southern, currently plays in Sweden) is a teammate of previously mentioned Hlynur Baeringsson and both played together in the last Swedish Basketligan game. Sigurdarson contributed to a Sundsvall Dragons' victory against the closely-ranked Norrkoping Dolphins (21-12) 93-85. He scored 14 points, had 4 rebounds and dished 3 assists. It's Sigurdarson's fourth season with the team. Sigurdarson is currently sixth on the list of top scorers. He has individually a very good season with high stats. Sigurdarson averages: 17.7ppg, 3.3rpg and 3.1apg. He is also Icelandic national team player.

Jon Stefansson
Jon Stefansson
   #5. International guard Jon Stefansson (196-82, currently plays in Spain) managed to help CAI Zaragoza in a victory against the closely-ranked G.Canaria 2014 (14-10) 69-53 in the Spanish ACB last Sunday. Stefansson scored only 4 points and grabbed 4 rebounds in 26 minutes. CAI Zaragoza (14-10) is placed sixth in the ACB. This year Stefansson's overall stats are: 6.2ppg, 2.1rpg and 1.6apg in the 19 games. He plays currently for the Icelandic national team.

Palsson did not beat the league record on Sunday evening. He scored only 3 points. The bottom-ranked Assignia Manresa was badly defeated 80-63 in Malaga by the much higher-ranked Unicaja (#11).
